Cross-Country Skiing

"Too many manuals are written without a sense of humour, but this one doesn't suffer there. The authors write in a way as to appeal and interest across all levels. This book is useful for an XC skiier to help hone their skiing, and useful to loan to doubting friends to get them interested.

This was the best book for nordic skiing up till about 1990, when the current telemark equipment evolution took the sport out of its nordic context into the realm of pure alpine skiing. For those who still are nostalgic for skiing on skinny skis, this book is still the best. For another classic, see Steve Barnett's Cross Country Downhill."
